Our selection this month is Euphoria by Lily King.

“English anthroJacketpologist Andrew Banson has been alone in the field for several years, studying the Kiona river tribe in the Territory of New Guinea. Haunted by the memory of his brothers’ deaths and increasingly frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when a chance encounter with colleagues, the controversial Nell Stone and her wry and mercurial Australian husband, Fen, pulls him back from the brink.”            Publisher Description

Shakespeare Workshop

Wednesday April 13, 2016
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Many events are being planned throughout the state this month to celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare, who died in 1616. The book that saved many of William Shakespeare’s greatest plays from being forever lost will be on view April 9, 2016 to May 1, 2016 in the exhibition, First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester. The exhibition brings one of the remaining copies of this important historic to the Currier as its exclusive New Hampshire and Boston-area venue.

To help us to celebrate the Bard,  Amanda Pawlik, Director of Education for the Hampstead Stage Company, will teach us how to read lines and to portray scenes from some of Shakespeare’s most popular and enduring plays.

Sign up today!

Evening Book Group

Tuesday March 22, 2016
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM


Our selection for this month is The Day The World Came To Town: 9/11 In Gander, Newfoundland by Jim DeFede.

“For the better part of a week, nearly every man, woman, and child in Gander and the surrounding smaller towns stopped what they were doing so they could help. They placed their lives on hold for a group of strangers and asked for nothing in return. They affirmed the basic goodness of man at a time when it was easy to doubt such humanity still existed.”      Amazon Editors
